Chennai, India – Palo Alto, USA: Uniphore announced new Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhancements to its products portfolio. With these additions, the company said it will provide new options for organisations to deliver transformational experiences throughout the entire engagement cycle.
Uniphore’s new AI enhancements are in the areas of intent discovery+next best action, agent promises model, proactive supervisor alerts and automatic feedback loop for optimization of its AI models.
The company’s new enhancements further bolster the capabilities of its existing products and those recently announced, which included the integrated front-end customer interaction and backend fulfillment from engagements and new solutions for agent authentication and customer data protection.
“From the beginning, Uniphore has led the industry by focusing on delivering AI+ Automation solutions that make a tangible difference in conversations between customers and agents,” said Umesh Sachdev, CEO and Co-Founder – Uniphore.
“These latest enhancements help our customers drive transformational experiences by delivering greater intelligence and recommendations through the application of deep learning AI models. I am extremely proud of the work our team has done to deliver these technology innovations for our customers.”
“For AI to be effective and make a strategic difference in contact centres, AI models need to be developed, tested and refined constantly. This is not easy and requires deep levels of understanding an experience to get it right,” said Zeus Kerravala, President and Founder – ZK Research.
“Uniphore is focused on the right things. Delivering models that drive better agent preparedness before the call, more active listening and accurate issue resolution during the call, and better post-call recordkeeping and follow-up,” added Kerravala.
Uniphore’s latest product enhancements include:
During every engagement, critical information is exchanged during different times of a call (greeting, authentication, discovery, resolution, wrap up, etc.) With a better understanding of what is happening when, Uniphore’s AI models can better help agents in real-time, assist customers with their needs and deliver more accurate summaries and shorten the overall time it takes to handle a call.
Example: When an agent begins the call wrap-up, the new AI model triggers the auto-summary capability and provides the call summary for the customer along with RPA-driven follow-ups. No more agents searching through their own notes and best recollection of what was said or committed during the call.
AI Modeling for Intent Detection
When identifying the intent of a customer, two primary factors must be considered by both agents and the AI models used to assist in this process: what is being said and how it is said. Uniphore’s latest AI models now take both into account with enhanced sentiment analysis for improved, real-time coaching and automated delivery of recommendations for resolution.
AI Intelligence for Informed Supervisor Alerts
Uniphore’s AI models bring all the information together (what stage is the call at, what is the emotional state of the call, what is being offered as a resolution, is the agent following the coaching, etc.) and turns it into intelligence to decide when and how to proactively alert supervisors to better support the engagement. False supervisor alerts can be counterproductive so having real intelligence informed by accurate AI models is critical.
After Call Work Self-optimizing AI Models
At the end of every call, millions of contact centre agents around the world spend valuable time summarizing and categorizing each call so the organisation can track the outcomes and improve the customer experience. The cost of those few minutes in after-call work (ACW) quickly adds up to millions of dollars spent by enterprises and the information often goes untapped for improvement.
Uniphore’s latest self-optimizing AI models have been developed so the system can learn from any additions, corrections, or insights agents include to the auto-generated summaries. Uniphore’s AI learns from these edits to better support future calls. As the system learns, it is scaled across the organisation, saving valuable time and increasing customer satisfaction.
These latest product enhancements will be available in the upcoming Fall release.
